    This parking lot needs a pink hotel, a boutique and a swinging hot spot.

  • I am surprised Radio Shack is still open for business, not just here but in general. This mall is past it’s prime, It started gasping for breath in the late 90’s and now the plug has been pulled.

      Wally World will suck Ellsworth dry of money and send it all to Arkansas.

       I am not a fan of Wallyworld either, but they can do simple things like design a parking lot.

    When they redesigned the parking lot to make it user unfriendly as possible (clearly the designer had never seen snow and snow piles) it was the stake in the heart for that mall. Personally, it is worth braving the parking lot to shop at Hannaford’s, but that is my limit. There is simply nothing left of interest in the rest of the mall – which is the direct result of the owner (owner’s) lack of consideration for the customers.

    I suspect that the owner (owner’s) found some design school intern in Florida, who had never seen snow, and saw a chance to get a parking lot on the cheap.

      I agree about parking lots..While those that have medians , trees , benchs and other crap look nice they are a PITA to plow and maintain during the winter…Stupid if you ask me…
